Macbook updated!

Posted:
in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
Not aluminium, unfortunately!



Still, up to 2.2GHz with Santa Rosa and 4GB RAM!

EDIT: The MBP now has a 2.6GHz option and a 250GB HD option although the Store page doesn't show this (it's on the normal product page).

    Which will be next -- the Mac Nano or a MacPro update? Now is holiday shopping season for consumer Macs, which would suggest the Mac Nano. Also, Apple may not have enough Penryns stocked up yet to start shipping Penryn-based MacPros.



    Added: I don't see any evidence of a MacBook update at apple.com.

    it is only an option update not a real update or new release. So it does make sense there is no aluminium.

    very disappointing update for MBP, i wished that they will be intel extreme chip; x7800 or x7900 and nvidia 8700

    this should have been posted in current hardware, seeing as it is now "current".

    for what it's worth i also await a nVidia 8700 and for goodness sake a SSD - solid state drive like 32 GB for the most commonly used files and the OS... and was amazed they hadn't incorporated this one already

    for example :

    Yes, I finally found traces of evidence. It's the most understated speedbump I've ever seen from Apple. I guess they don't want to take attention away from Leopard.

    Both MacBook, and MBP were updated today. incremental update for the MBP which means we probably wont see anything from either of these until WWDC at the soonest, and that might even be pushing it.



    MOVE TO CURRENT HARDWARE

    I think it's a safe bet we won't see another MacBook speedbump at MWSF. There is no more new hardware coming from Intel that Apple would put in the MacBook in January. On the other hand, whatever mobile Penryns Apple can get will probably go in the MacBook Pro.

    why are you and the other person in this thread such a post nazi? give the guy a break, this has been a drawn out process for those of us waiting for the update. we check the future hardware to see what news might be out...so normally, you would not check the current hardware.

    Those chips are too hot to be put in a MacBook Pro (not enough room for the required cooling).

    Why would you check Future Hardware for news? It's for speculation, rumors and ramblings. You need to start looking at Mac news sites like Macworld.com, Macnn, or Macsurfer. Use one of those for your home page like most everybody that is that interested in Mac news.
